Turns out your dog doesn't have to perform any Lassie-like heroics to save your life.

Having a dog does your heart good (literally). The new research, published in the journal Circulation , offers happy news for dog lovers. "Dog ownership was associated with a 24 percent risk reduction for all-cause mortality as compared to non-ownership," declare the authors.

The first and most obvious explanation is that your pet … [Read more...] about How to Live Longer According to a New Study of 3.8 Million People: Get a Dog

When Jack Dorsey announced on Twitter a while back that he sometimes doesn't eat for days , healthy eating advocates responded with a howl of outrage. But even though Dorsey's routine may be extreme, he's certainly not alone in his fascination with "intermittent fasting." "Eating is so last season" According to its many Silicon Valley backers, fasting isn't just a new trendy take on the good, old diet (or anorexia in disguise). It's a science-backed way to promote increased health and productivity. "Eating is so last season; these days all the cool kids fast," joked Arwa Mahdawi in a UK Guardian article chronicling the newfound obsession with not eating in Silicon Valley "where a number of high-profile tech execs extol the transformative power of extreme fasting." The Atlantic has also covered the tech industry's obsession with the idea. The claims of fasting fans aren't entirely baseless. Years of research have shown that calorie restriction increases … [Read more...] about You Don’t Have to Starve Yourself for Days Like Jack Dorsey to Get the Benefits of Fasting
BIDEN INVOKES EMERGENCY WAR POWERS TO BUILD SOLAR PANELS… NY POST: Biden draws heat for invoking Defense Production Act to boost solar panels President Biden drew criticism Monday after invoking the Defense Production Act to potentially expedite the production of solar panels — with journalists and Republicans questioning the rationale for using special wartime powers. Renewable energy advocates, meanwhile, cheered the White House announcement that Biden would invoke the act “to accelerate domestic production of clean energy technologies, including solar panel parts.” […] The Biden administration did not specify a national-defense reason for using the act to boost solar panels. When Biden was vice president, the Obama administration aggressively pushed for solar energy production — sparking the Solyndra scandal when a politically-connected firm went bankrupt after getting $535 million in federal loan guarantees.

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin In 1986, then Green Bay Packers coach Forrest Gregg stunned the football world by releasing quarterback Lynn Dickey and tight end Paul Coffman at the end of training camp. At the time, Dickey held most of the Packers’ all-time passing records, while Coffman ranked among the top tight ends in team history. The moves sent shockwaves through Packer Nation. And more than two decades later, both Dickey and Coffman were still furious. “Forrest, he’s someone I have nothing to say about,” Coffman once told me. Dickey didn't hold back when discussing Gregg. “Bart and Forrest were like night and day,” Dickey said, referring to Bart Starr, his first coach in Green Bay. “Bart would work you extremely hard physically. I've never worked harder than I did under Bart. But he treated people with decency and treated you like a man. “Forrest came in and he yelled at you and he insulted you in front of the team. Some things … [Read more...] about Predicting The Green Bay Packers 53-Man Roster

Managing time is one of a CEO’s greatest challenges, but it’s not just their own time they are responsible for. One of a leader’s main responsibilities is setting a clear strategy for their organization, and good strategy is about making choices among competing priorities. advertisement advertisement With finite resources and numerous problems to fix, organizations can become inefficient without clear direction. It’s the CEO’s job to provide that direction for the use of limited resources. But with issues, opportunities, and initiatives popping up all the time, it’s not always easy to prioritize.

Sister Precy Aseneta-Macasaet, a missionary, visionary and divine healer, leads the celebration of the feast of the God the Father of All Mankind at the St. Joseph the Worker Cathedral-Shrine in Tagbilaran City on Sunday, Aug. 7. (Leo Udtohan/Inquirer Visayas) TAGBILARAN CITY – Boholanos on Sunday celebrated the feast of “God the Father of all Mankind” with a Mass at the cathedral here. Bishop Alberto “Abet” Uy of the Diocese of Tagbilaran, in his homily, said the devotion to God the Father entails faith. “Faith is to believe in what you do not see. The reward of the faith is to see what you believe,” he said. Uy narrated how God tested Abraham’s faith by commanding the latter to offer his only son Isaac as a sacrifice. While the decision was hard to make, Abraham obeyed God. After Isaac was bound to an altar, a messenger from God stopped Abraham, saying “now I know you fear God.” Abraham looked around and saw a ram and sacrificed it instead of Isaac.

Oil languished near its lowest since the start of the war in Ukraine on Friday on fears of a global recession, though stocks ignored such worries, gaining ahead of U.S. jobs data that will give another clue to the health of the world's largest economy. Benchmark Brent crude futures were up a touch at $94.23 a barrel and U.S. crude futures were also a whisker higher at $88.70 a barrel, after both closed the previous session at their lowest levels since February. Losses were partly due to data on Wednesday showing surge in U.S. inventories last week. "It's a combination of the inventory data and a bit of worries about demand. Because the market is worried about growth more than inflation - even though inflation is still a major issue - the oil price has come down," said Prashant Bhayani, chief investment officer for Asia at BNP Paribas Wealth Management. In another warning sign for the global economy, the closely watched part of the U.S. Treasury yield curve measuring the gap … [Read more...] about Oil languishes on recession fears; unconcerned stocks climb on

National Review senior writer Dan McLaughlin wrote Monday that President Joe Biden “could put a stop to the public walkbacks” from White House aides by “immediately by firing one or more people for publicly contradicting him.” “In fact, Biden has been remarkably averse to firing anyone,” McLaughlin went on to say. “It was once common practice in D.C. to make underlings walk the plank as a way of not only deflecting blame, but also showing that the president was serious about holding people accountable if they failed the voters.” Patriots, are there any White House officials Biden should fire?
